I dont like Obummer any better than anyone else but listen to the news.Some of the refineries have closed, political tensions in Iran and natural disasters have created a disruption in the supply which has drove the price up.He didnt have anything to do w it.

Every now and again, "greene guy" will appear here posting either from Asheville or Monroe, N.C. "thanking" President Obama for gas prices if they are in their natural cycle of rising... as they do at the end of winter.

Now, I'm not making accusations... exactly... but the only posters who cycle between Monroe and Asheville are: Word Woman, Nita Mann, and Greene Guy... all who showed up around the same time on Greeneville Topix.

Ever heard of the term "sock puppet?"

The practice died in the early-to-mid 2000's mostly, but on anonymous sites like Topix, I am sure it still thrives.

Let's now hear from all three to provide a rebuttal.

Classic borderline personality disorder.

You liberals blamed Bush and his ties to the oil industry when gas prices went up during his administration. Now it's our turn. The truth didn't matter then.

The stock market speculators set the fuel prices, plain and simple. As long as we have free enterprise, the government can do nothing about fuel prices. Also, the refineries are retooling for summer grades of fuel making supplies low at the moment. Read the paper, listen to the news and learn a little something before coming on here and showing your ignorance.

one reason gas prices have doubled since Obama has been in office is due to the devaluation of the US dollar. Oil is traded based on the US dollar .... not the euro ... not the peso .... not the yen ... but the us dollar.

with the weakened state of the dollar ..... oil prices have increased dramatically. we will never see gas below $2 again. Its quite possible it will not drop below $3 again.

Ethanol production is very expensive and driving up gas prices. 40% of corn production is mandated to go to ethanol production. The diversion of corn is also driving up food prices.

Did you know that the inflation rates that Obama is publishing no longer iclude energy and food cost in their calculation?? These 2 areas take the biggest bites out of peoples budgets .... but ar ignored. The elderly is punished the most. Their social security raises are based on the inflation rate.

gas prices are at a record high for this time of the year. Refineries also must run at 100% capacity to meet demand. The last refinery was built in the late 70's. EPA and liberal backed groups have been successful in blocking any new refineries from being built for over 30 years. We are having to import refined gas from other countries.

dont take my word .... research it

I got my facts wrong on the refineries.... a small one began production in 2008. The copy/paste below came from a government web site

There were a total of 144 operable petroleum refineries in the United States as of January 1, 2012.

The "newest" refinery in the United States began operating in 2008 in Douglas, Wyoming. However, the newest significant (or sophisticated) refinery began operating in 1977 in Garyville, Louisiana.

Capacity has also been added to existing refineries through upgrades or new construction. The most recent examples include:

•In 1998, Orion Refinery massively upgraded and reopened a refinery in Norco, Louisiana, which was a small, simple refinery that originally opened in 1967.(It is now owned by Valero.)
•Valero opened a "new" and very sophisticated refinery in 1983 in Corpus Christi, Texas, on the site of a simple refinery that originally opened in 1975.
The newest refineries currently operating in the United States are as follows:

Year Built First Operated Location Original Owner Original Capacity Current Owner 2011 Capacity Type
2008 2008 Douglas, WY Interline Resources 3,000 Garco Energy 3,600 Simple
1998 1998 Atmore, AL Goodway 4,100 Goodway 4,100 Simple
1993 1993 Valdez, AK Petro Star 26,300 Petro Star 55,000 Simple
1991 1992 Eagle Springs, NV Petro Source 7,000 Foreland 2,000 Simple
1986 1987 North Pole, AK Petro Star 6,700 Petro Star 19,700 Simple
1985 1986 Anchorage, AK ARCO 12,000 ConocoPhillips 15,000 Simple

The Fed and Barry Obama are printing $85 billion a month and buying our own securities. This printing money "out of nowhere" devalues our currency. It is a policy that will eventually crash the stock market unless unemployment can somehow get to about 6%. The only growth our country is experiencing right now is government growth which as you may surmise, is unsustainable in the long run. Higher gold, oil, commodity prices in general, are a result of this dead end policy.

posting from a different town :)

This is from CNN ..... liberals look at their stories as gospel

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- The drought that's killing crops across the Midwest and sending corn prices to record highs has revived calls to end or ease the government's requirement that corn-based ethanol be blended with gasoline.

Current rules stipulate that nearly 10% of the nation's gasoline supply come from corn-based ethanol. To make that ethanol, up to 40% of the country's annual corn production can be required.

With corn prices surging -- they're up 50% in the last six weeks alone -- many say waiving the mandate would help bring those prices down. They say lower corn prices would also help lower prices for certain foods that depend on the crop, like cereal and meat.

this is from Bloomberg

Record-high corn prices should be sending a clear message to policy makers in Washington: Requiring people to put corn-based fuel in their gas tanks is a bad idea.

Since 2005, the U.S. government has mandated that gasoline contain ethanol, almost all of it derived from corn. The policy, ostensibly aimed at reducing the country’s dependence on foreign oil and at improving the environment, has been a bonanza for farmers. Land planted with corn soared by a fourth after Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which required that gasoline producers blend 15 billion gallons of ethanol into the nation’s gasoline supply by 2015.
